Participating schools from the Washoe County School District have joined in on this important initiative to help kids recognize and make healthier choices at school.

Healthy cafeteria initiatives modify the food environment during school lunch periods, prominently displaying, marketing, and increasing the convenience of healthy foods and providing many healthy options, especially fresh, whole foods and foods cooked from scratch. Healthy cafeteria initiatives can focus on food served through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) as well as competitive or à la carte offerings.

Healthcare Organizations

Research has shown that primary care providers can and should play an important role in obesity prevention because they are in a unique position to partner with patients and families/caregivers and to influence key components of the broader strategy of developing community support. To be effective we know that healthcare practice teams need tools and resources that are evidence-based, practical, accessible, and inclusive.

Introducing the NV 5-2-1-0 messages in the healthcare office not only provides a credible location for the
messages, it also emphasizes the important role healthcare professionals can play in supporting healthy behaviors.
